    Hello!

    I just downloaded Windows 7 professional 64bit from Microsofts UK student site (ie I got it for £30)

    it downloaded a file, (DLMWin7Pro64UK.exe) in which I promptly double clicked on.

    That opened, unpacked "expandedSetup" folder and begun the installation process.

    So far so good.

    HOWEVER

    what happens if I continue the installation process, I mean there is no disc in drive as it is sat on me desktop, I was hoping to do a clean install because it probably won't let me 'downgrade' (atm I'm running a cracked [pirated] version of Windows 7 Ultimate, I'm buying it because I think its brilliant!)

    So, can I/do I just burn the "expandedSetup" files to disc and boot from disc?


    thanks for your help!

    There have been a lot of problems with the Student version of Windows 7. Try contacting microsoft as they have been offering another version of it or a refund for free (And you get to keep your product key)

    Hello, and thank you for your reply

    I contacted Microsoft and they basically said no.

    I have to contact Digital River and not them.

    So, I phoned them (via the US number cause there isn't one for the UK) and they told me they would send a link, but they didn't :(

    So I phoned again

    they still didn't :(


    to be honest, I've always been a pirated customer unless I got it with my computer, I'm starting to think perhaps I should have stayed that way, I've never had a problem with Microsoft before...
